I recently bought an acre of land planning to build a small house there. 4 acres on the other side of town came available recently at 5K an acre, which makes the whole 4 acres less than what my 1 cost. Only issue is there is a pipeline though the property. I just want a small, 2 bedroom house, so even with a few barns I can dodge it, but with a big house, maybe not, but that isn't a concern. I can simply make that area pasture. Any other reason not to own land with a pipeline? I figure I'd keep all structures within 50 feet of it.
